Sports Premium


Sport’s Premium Funding – Impact evaluation for academic year 2015-16

What is Sport Premium?

Sport Premium is an amount of money which the government allocates to schools each year up to the year 2020. The funding amount schools receive is based upon the number of children of primary age the school has.  The Sport Premium has to be used to increase the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, and increase participation in PE and sport.

At Godley Primary Academy, we strive to promote healthy and active lifestyles and aim to provide sporting opportunities for all our pupils.

The 2015-16 Sports Premium funding for Godley Primary Academy was £9075

Key Objective


Positive impacts on staff development and pupil progress

  1. Provide greater extra-curricular sporting opportunities for all pupils.






Prior to the Sport’s premium funding, we already had a varied and exciting extra-curricular programme, mainly led by teaching staff.  In order to attract less active children we have used the extra funding to employ new coaches in more specialised areas.  We also stopped charging parents for all sporting clubs to encourage more children to attend and also to attract more children who receive the pupil premium award. 

The children have enjoyed coaching in football, netball, dodgeball, basketball, athletics and cricket throughout the year.  At the end of each half term of coaching the children have taken part in inter school sporting competitions where they have been able to confidently display their new skills. 

As a result of this children have taken part in a wide range of cluster competitions as well as some borough competitions

  1. To promote healthy week and general health and fitness


Freddy Fit delivered physical activity sessions to all children and staff in school to promote health and fitness and enhance healthy week.

  1. Increase participation in cluster competitions

Cluster membership


Children took part in a wide range of sport competitions throughout the year. Cluster competitions for KS2 children included: orienteering, handball, dodgeball, girls’ football, basketball and quadkids.  10 children from ks1 took part in a relay competition.

  1. Increase participation in borough competitions


Children took part in a wide range of sport competitions in the borough throughout the year.  Competitions included: rugby, hockey, indoor athletics, basketball, lacrosse, volleyball, netball, cricket, quadkids, rounders, tennis, dodgeball. The total number of children participating in competitions across the year was 176.
